Members of the Outdoor Club of South Jersey can select a walking/running mileage goal of 500 or 750 miles for the calendar year.  Reaching your annual goal is based on mileage you complete during months you are a member of the mileage club. 



Walk (or run) on club hikes, around your neighborhood, at the mall, or on a treadmill.  The only requirement is that to count mileage for any "event" in the day - you must accumulate at least 1 consecutive mile for that event.  There is no limit to how many "events" one might have in a day.  Consecutive mile means you can’t walk a half mile in the morning and a half mile in the evening and count 1 mile for your total for that day - but you can hike 1 mile in the morning and 1 in the evening for 2 total miles for that day.


REPORTING MILES:  Keep track of your miles for the month - and email your month's total miles to Valerie by the 5th of each month.  Valerie keeps a spreadsheet of everyone's miles - and emails the result to club members around the 6th of the month.  If you miss sending in your miles by the 5th – email them to Valerie as soon as possible.

AWARDS PATCH:  Those reaching their goal by the end of the year - receive a patch at our awards gathering held early the following year.  The patch depicts a hiker and reads

    "MEMBER   500+ Mile Club   500+ Miles in 20__    Outdoor Club of South Jersey ".  

The year is handwritten on your patch.
